Backup from Win XP to Win 7 ?

Postby Phil » Mon, 31 Aug 2009 06:11:27 GMT

Hello!

Is there a way to backup all accounts, mails and contacts from WLM on a XP 
machine to WLM on Win 7 machine, without downloading all mails again?
The accounts inlude POP, IMAP and Hotmail accounts.

In Outlook Express there was a Pop3uidl.dbx file for POP accounts, which 
prevented OE to download old mails again. I could simply copy the mail 
folder with the Pop3uidl.dbx.

Thanks in advance!

Have you looked at this free third party utility:

I used it successfully to migrate all WLM accounts, messages, and
settings from a Vista machine to a Windows 7 machine.

WLM doesn't have a Pop3uidl.dbx file.

It can also be done from within WLM
1. Export Messages(File/Export/Messages) - requires a blank folder(e.g. create one a jump drive or external drive)
2. Export accounts(Tools/Accounts/<select account>/Export - repeat for each mail and news account
3. Export Contacts(Open Contacts, File/Export/choose CSV file)
    - fyi..not necessary for a Live ID Hotmail account using Http)

I tried the manual with several different ways but each time all the mails 
still get redownloaded.
I'll try the software solution later.

Thanks

But that way one would still loose settings and certificates, right?

I successfully backed up and restored my mails!
I simply copied the 'Mail.MSMessageStore' file and all the folders with 
mails to the accounts I wanted to backup.
The problem with the software solutions is that you can only backup all 
mails.

Each installation on a different pc requires one to configure any unique user chosen settings.
With respect to #2 Export Accounts...an export to iaf retains/restores that accounts settings(e.g. name, server[s], username, email 
address, password, etc)
